This blog was born in french during autumn 2003 and is now progressively being translated in your language.
New articles will therefore appear on a regular basis.
... my apologies to the people who hadn't understood this yet, all articles on this website are created and written by myself (his dad).
Lou is currently unable to do it,, just like he is to this day unable to grasp the concept of a "computer", "internet", or to focus for a long period of time on a conversation. Only time will tell us if we manage to integrate him completely in the world in which he lives.
Therefore all stories, despite relating actual facts, are obviously biased by my interpretation of his behavior. But having known him for over five years, I don't think I'm getting it wrong.
Thank you to the "Roi Baudoin" foundation ( "Parcours hors pistes" ). The new design, hosting and translations were partially made possible by their financial support.
Many thanks to Marco Pappalardo et Laetitia Bouet for the translation.

117. This is it...
It was bound to happen... I can tell daddy's been doing a lot of thinking in the past month. And he took his decision...
It will be a few months soon since he started writing one, two, or three articles about me
everyday on this website, since he stepped into my shoes, making me say lots of things that I would be incapable of saying by myself.
Despite the repeated warnings, and beyond the sincere game that takes place with some readers who write to my "double", many seem to have missed the fact that my mental handicap is serious. If you carefully go over the posts, you'll see the sentences between quotation marks attributed to me are the only ones I'm capable of saying. And if you read those carefully, you might be able to discern that invisible barrier which makes comunication with me impossible.
So in order to remain completely honest, the day has come for me, Lou's daddy, to do the talking... because that's the point I wanted to make. And also because it's time to get to work on that darn book and that slightly odd documentary haunting my nights : "letters to Lou" - a little prince quite unlike all others -
Hence this website will no longer be updated daily, rather now and then. Also, I created a second "blog" (letters to Lou), where I will write these "letters to Lou" using the first person. It will be another laboratory, more discreet and a bit darker (I'll talk about it again). Finally I just created a mailing-list for those of you who wish to be informed when new articles are posted on either website.
Today I just sent a call for help to many producers who know me, like a message in a bottle, with honesty and probably also clumsiness ... as I usually do. Whatever will be, will be. My only baggage is what I am : an imperfect human being, with his qualities and his flaws. For in my own way, I am a bit like Lou, in a world I don't easily understand, and which scares me increasingly.
Lou is more than a mirro, he is an angel lost on an unknown planet.
And in that respect, I see myself in him.
Lou is existential question. No more, no less. And that's why on top of all these projects, I still have a lot more to share with you that's
not strictly about Lou or "me". But those are completely different stories.
My reason to keep moving forward today, to shake myself, and to keep walking down this path with you, dear readers.
